SweetWater Brewing Co. has announced a new winter seasonal that takes its name from a fishing lure.
Named Spinnerbait, the Belgian red ale comes in at six percent ABV and 25 IBUs, along with aromatic, two-row, Pilsner, wheat and black wheat malts. The beer also incorporates Columbus, Willamette and US Golding hops along with Ardennes yeast and Belgian rock candy.
The new Belgian red ale will join five other beers already released in SweetWater’s Catch & Release series, which also includes Road Trip pilsner (5.2 percent ABV), WaterKeeper hefeweizen (5.7 percent ABV), Whiplash White IPA (6.2 percent ABV), Festive Ale (8.5 percent ABV) and Happy Ending imperial stout (9 percent ABV).
According to a press release, Spinnerbait will be available in 12-ounce six-packs, on draft and in Tackle Box variety packs across the Atlanta-based brewery’s 11-state distribution network starting the first week of December.
